Maris is the type of designer that truly listens to her clients’ objectives and designs the space to accomplish them in an attractive and efficient way. She is thorough, creative and professional. I would recommend Maris to any company who is seeking to create a space that will define who they are and where they are going.

I have worked with Maris in two organizations and have found her to be diligent and creative throughout the design process. Her high level of professionalism and consistent positive attitude have made her a pleasure to work with even under demanding circumstances and tight timelines. I would highly recommend her to anyone requiring a thoroughly professional designer.

Maris Bernard is truly one of the most talented and hard-working designers in the industry today. She managed a major residential & commercial project spanning over a year and showed everyone lucky enough to work with her that she can handle any project with grace and accuracy, no matter the size or scope. Her aesthetic is remarkable and visually stunning, showing her years of hands-on experience and continuing professional development.

I have recommended Maris to my clients who have purchased homes as well as those who are selling. She has an excellent understanding of both the client needs and what buyers are looking for. She makes design and architectural recommendations that meet the client’s goals with an eye to the property’s maximum value. Maris has both the talent and personality to work with many different clients, situations, and price ranges. Most importantly, she puts their needs first.
